Oystermouth Castle is located in a beautiful location on the hill in Mumbles, overlooking Swansea Bay. Oystermouth Castle was used as the residence of the Marcher Lords of Gower, and as such was frequently under attack from the Welsh population. The earliest building is the keep which dates from the early 12th century.
Over recent years the castle has undergone conservation work to ensure the castle structure is safe for the foreseeable future. Work was carried out under the expert eye of Glamorgan Gwent archaeologists.

Now the public can explore parts of the castle that have been hidden away for centuries, new features include ancient graffiti art from the 14th century, private staircases leading from vaults to previous banqueting halls and a 30 foot high glass bridge...??
